Product Description

Beliefs, Customs and traditions define every aspect of Jewish life. From the
day a Jew is born until after they die, every day marks a different stage of
life, each with its own personal and religious significance

The Eights Day
“Nature is what you started out with, not
what you want to become.”
Spoken by Joseph the Physician to
Micha, these words reflect the eternal
struggle between the wish to ‘fit in’ and
the desire to serve a higher calling.
Religious life for a Jewish man begins on
the eights day after his birth, and marks
his initiation into the ritual cycle of life.
Set in the days of the Maccabim when
the Greeks ruled the promised land, The
Eights Day follows the struggle of a
father from the desire to give his son a
‘normal’ Greek life, to his recognition of
the importance of his Jewish heritage and
a growing urgency to proudly pass it to
his young son.
The Journey
Set in the Marxist Soviet of 1941 when freedom of thought and belief
were crimes against the state, The Journey is the story of American Civil
Engineer Jonathan Levinson and youngster Nikolai Krone. As Nikolai awakens
to being no longer a child, he learns that it is now up to him to ask the important
questions in life, and to find the answers he needs. Through the miraculous
meeting of Jonathan and Nikolai they both come to embrace the beauty and
importance of the Bar-Mitzva ceremony, and the privilege and responsibility it
bring to being a full adult Jewish man.
The Corridor
The last landmark in the Jewish Life Cycle is death and burial.
Sharon, a young girl in Israel as a summer volunteer, has a near death
experience as she survives a near-fatal car crash. Following Sharon through a
series of profound discoveries, The Corridor portrays the difficulty of coping
with extraordinary inner truths as she deals with skeptics and believers alike.
Sharon then gets a new neighbor in the next hospital bed who reveals to her
some of the deeper Jewish beliefs on the matter.
“Beyond the seven days of creation there is an eight day”

Through extraordinary human stories The Jewish Life cycle paints beautiful pictures
of religious discovery and the importance of these landmarks in a person’s life.
From the day we are born and begin a brave new life until after our death, this is the
Jewish cycle of life.
